Looking to capitalize on our nation's obsession with all things bacon, the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, the Triple-A affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies, have released a new cap that might make your mouth water.

The IronPigs on Monday unveiled new uniforms for 2014, one of which just says "Pigs" across the chest and has a corresponding cap with a slice of bacon across it. You might think is something out of a goofy Will Ferrell movie, but no, that's minor league baseball for you. 

The IronPigs are a team that has previously given away a funeral at a game and added a urine-powered video game to its ... ummm ... facilities. So bacon on the cap? Not entirely surprising.

The IronPigs will wear the bacon caps every Saturday night throughout the season. We're anticipating your next question — yes, they're already for sale. The bacon caps will run you $28 at the team's online store. Try not to eat them, OK?

It a shame that these bacon caps are coming out a year after Delmon Young left the Phillies organization. Delmon Young in a bacon cap would break Twitter.
